Residents Who Do Not Receive Voter Card Still Eligible to Vote


The Campaign to Re-Elect Mark Taylor wishes to remind voters that eligible electors who have not received voter notification in the mail are still eligible to vote in the 2014 Municipal Election.

The City of Ottawa’s Voters’ List is compiled from information received from Ontario’s Municipal Property Assessment Corporation. The Voters’ List will be available for you to review at the City of Ottawa’s Elections Office (1221 Cyrville Road, Unit B), Ottawa City Hall (110 Laurier Avenue West), and all Client Service Centres from Tuesday, September 2 to Monday, October 27, 2014. You should check the Voters’ List to ensure that your name, address and school-support designation are listed correctly.

If your name is not on the Voters' List, you can still vote in municipal elections (or be an eligible elector) if, on Voting Day, you are:

  • a resident of the City of Ottawa, or an owner or tenant of land in the City of Ottawa, or the spouse of such an owner or tenant;
  • a Canadian citizen;
  • at least 18 years old; and
  • not prohibited from voting by law.

 If you are not a resident in the City of Ottawa, to vote for a school board Trustee, you must be:

  • an owner or tenant of residential property in the area of jurisdiction of the school board, who does not support any other school board. If you are not sure which board you support, this information can be found on the Voters’ List.

Eligible electors who have not received a notification can find their voting location by using the online voting place search tool on, or by calling the Elections Office at 613-580-2660 or 3-1-1. The online voting search tool will provide locations of the voting place for the traditional advance dates of October 9 and 18, as well as Voting Day on Monday, October 27.

When going to the voting place, you are reminded to bring an acceptable form of identification that shows proof of name and a qualifying Ottawa address. A list of acceptable forms of identification can be found at
